Giudecca

 

 

What to see…

  1. Chiesa del Redentore, one of Palladio’s greatest masterpieces. It was commissioned by the city as thanksgiving for the end of the great plague of 1575 – 77. On the third Sunday of each July, Venetians visit this church by crossing a long pontoon bridge made up of boats from the Dorsoduro’s Zattere.
  2. Casa Dei Tre Oci is a wonderful example of Venetian neo-gothic architecture of the early 1900s. Built in 1913, it became in 2012 an exhibition space open to public. The view on the Canale della Giudecca and San Marco is amazing!

 

Where to stop…

  1. Molino Stucky, the view of Venice from the rooftop bar at the Hilton hotel (Molino Stucky—it used to be a 19th-century flour mill) is perhaps even more spectacular than the view from San Marco’s Campanile.
  2. Harry’s Dolci, the scenery is really beautiful because you can have lunch in a special place overlooking right on the Giudecca Canal and overlooking the Church of San Giorgio. Leave a generous space for the sweet taste sensation!
  3. Trattoria Altanella has been managed for four generations by the Stradella family. You can enjoy the real Venetian cuisine, excellent seafood, the setting is quiet and romantic.
